Odella & Willie Dixon
Dr. Daren Bowlby and Crew,
I wanted to thank you for the kindness that you have shown my husband Willie and myself. We were always treated like you were glad to see us, and when you don’t feel very good and are in a lot of pain that means an awful lot. When I first came to see you I was living on pain pills and muscle relaxers. I could not even get out of bed by myself! That was the first week of February 2007.
I can now walk all over wherever I want to go. After about three weeks I was able to move around by myself and walk with a cane! By the first of May I could walk without the cane, not far but I was so much better I was not taking those awful pills anymore. After having several adjustments on my neck I went to see my Optometrist and two years ago I was beginning to get Glaucoma, and this year when I went in to see him for my check up he said that there was no sign of Glaucoma! He asked what I had been doing and I told him about Dr. Bowlby and Dr. Boucher, and how much they had helped me. I will be eternally grateful for the work they did!
My husband Willie hurt his back several times on the job. He had never gone to a Chiropractor before and when he saw how much they had helped me he went to have adjustments done also. Three weeks ago his back went out on him and he couldn’t get out of bed. I put his brace on him and with the help of a cane, his brace, and myself we got him in to see Dr. Bowlby. The good Dr. got him on the table and with just a few adjustments he was back on his feet again!! Thank you Dr. Bowlby!
Dr. Bowlby has also helped Willie to regain 25% of the 60% of the kidney loss due to his diabetes! The only thing left is his high blood pressure! We are both so grateful to all of you at the office. All of the girls have such beautiful smiles, when greeting us when we come in and when we leave.
Sincerely your grateful patients

Sometime in December 2007 I woke up one morning and noticed that throughout the day the fingers of my right hand would feel numb.
Over the next few days the feeling spread to my right arm, and within a week my whole right should, arm, and hand were feeling tingly and numb.
Within another couple of days, I noticed that whenever I looked down, bent my chin to my chest, went to put my hair up or when looking slightly down, I felt this intense shocking/tingling numb sensation shoot down my spine. It would start in my neck, travel down into my tailbone, and end up in my right foot. I knew I needed to see a chiropractor as soon as possible.
Dr. Bowlby has worked on me and members of my family in the past with positive results, so he was my first choice.
I started treatment right away. Adjustments and rehab, (Along with at-home exercises) three days a week for about three or four weeks, then two days a week, then once a week and so forth. It took about three weeks for me to notice any difference, it seemed like it was going to take forever, and me being as worrisome as I am, it was frustrating sometimes. But improvement came, never the less.
It’s been about five months now, and I have improved drastically. No more sensations shooting down my spine, no more numbness in the shoulder and arm. And I still get adjusted for “upkeep”. (Riding four-wheelers and sleeping on the ground when camping can’t be good for the vertebrae.)
So if you are having neck, back, or other pain, or symptoms like the ones I described, I highly recommend receiving treatment from Bowlby Chiropractic.
Suffering with lower back pain, I couldn’t even bend over to tie my kids’ shoes, due to a herniated disc. But at 29, I didn’t want to risk back surgery. When nothing else worked to help my pinched nerve, I decided to see a chiropractor. After just one visit to Dr. Bowlby, I felt full relief of pressure and in a week, I was like a new person! I’m walking and feeling so much better.
Dear Dr. Bowlby,
When I first came into your office, I had a knotted muscle in my neck that hurt for more than a year and caused numbness in my hands and right arm. I also had an injury to the middle back that felt like a knife when it was out of place. In addition, I had injured my low back high-jumping in highschool 30 years ago. I have developed arthritis in my neck and I’ve had to sleep on a very hard mattress to keep my back from going out.
I have been on a treatment program for 3 months now. My lower back is fine, my middle back is healing, and the stiffness is gone. The knot in my neck is gone and so is the numbness in my hands and arm. For the first time in over a year, I am not in pain!
Thank you Dr. Bowlby! You really know how to straighten someone who is really out of line. And you know how to get rid of a real pain in the neck. I’ve invested a lot of money in my life; this is the best investment I’ve ever made.

Dear Dr. Bowlby, Dr. Binns, and Staff:
This letter is long overdue but I am notorious for procrastination. But as I always say, “Better late than not at all”.
Since my first visit to your clinic last summer, which included an x-ray and consultation followed up by a 3 month treatment plan for my lower back, neck and arm, I can truly say I feel like a million dollars or at least several thousand.
Your professionalism, friendly, helpful staff and the weekly adjustment by Dr. Binn’s truly improved my entire well being and general enjoyment of life. I no longer get up in the morning so stiff that I can hardly get out of bed. I can do my weekly or monthly routine which sometimes includes a lot of heavy lifting, mowing, weed-wacking, digging, planting, cleaning, (vacuuming being the worst of all), scrubbing floors, washing windows, cleaning the garage and outbuildings, washing the car ( or 2 or 3 cars) and still have enough energy to paint and play with my hand-bells; with nary a twinge of aches, pains, or stiffness. I feel that all this energy is possible due to your adjustments and the wonderful 15 or 20 minutes or so each visit I spend on the hydro-massage therapy bed.
I can’t say enough about the difference my affiliation with your clinic has done to help me regain my stamina, strength, and overall healthy well-being.
I was pretty leery at first thinking that you talked a good game, and wondered if 5 minute adjustments several times a week were really going to strengthen my back and ease the aches that I attributed to old age and lack of exercise. You definitely cleared up any misgivings I had, and showed me that chiropractic treatment really does work. I have never taken any medication that ever helped me on an ongoing basis. Eventually they would wear off and it was time to start all over again.
The rest is now up to me, to exercise, eat right, drink lots of water, have regular check-ups and drop in on my friendly neighborhood chiropractor when something doesn’t feel quite right.
I am forever in your debt. I will continue to recommend my friends to your clinic to hopefully introduce them to the benefits of chiropractic treatment. If this sounds like an advertisement, IT IS. As I always say: IF IT FEELS GOOD: DO IT.
My sincerest appreciation,
The first time I heard of chiropractic treatment was from a friend. I was real skeptical of going because I was already in so much pain that in my mind I was thinking that I don’t want to go through any more pain. My friend and I talked and she pursuaded me to make the call. When I went in for the first time everyone was real friendly and helpful. The doctors explained to me in detail what is going on and what needs to be done.
What I was experiencing was my spine and neck weren’t aligned right which was causing the nerves to be pinched. I even experienced muscle spasms shooting up from my lower back to my upper back. I was always shifting my weight from side to side when I was sitting just to get comfortable. I was in constant pain.
After about the third adjustment, my pain was disappearing. With the regular adjustments and doing back exercises and using the hydro-bed my back is pain-free! Dr. Bowlby has a special gift! He is so willing to help people on relieving their pain drug-free. I really had nothing to lose and a lot to gain. I highly recommend to anyone the service that “Bowlby Chiropractic Center” has to offer.
